2:31 pm
2:32 pm
hello again this is our three live from moscow very good to have you company it's kevin owen here let's get across the business. dimitri said to me today richard branson has flown over especially to moscow is on a mission for some mission but he's got several reasons actually to be here millions of dollars of deals on the table but also there's one particular issue he's very frustrated about not all about it in my program. welcome to the program the head of virgin group richard branson is indeed in moscow to try and convince the russian government that virgin airways is the better choice to fly between london and moscow after rival easyjet was awarded the spirit let's now are joined our very own katie tobin she's at the business desk for more details all right katie good to see you there so the night has come charging into moscow to get his way in. as a bit of excitement about it of
2:33 pm
a height he certainly means business wear on the wear on the polls are going to exclusive interview with the man himself so i went out the other day let's have a listen we think i actually think it's more the kind of people in moscow with all the years between like that he. acquired very small play it's not such a good idea so we think we think the civil aviation authority made the wrong decision. ok now he did mention gatwick one of the reasons he's saying that that isn't quite so great as to coming into heathrow is simply. out of business man a lot of business and to use this phrase and he is not really asked to vinnie and i think a lot of people would go along with that because of where it is in london if you're working in a sense or isn't quite as convenient alex a bit further out. so that which is which is important because it's not just a businessman but everyone else easyjet is
2:34 pm
a low cost or isn't it what you have to say about that. delegate that's actually one of the reasons he is challenging the decision because he's saying the ok easy jet they are historically a cheaper line but he's saying that because his jets are big are the more tickets available and at the end of the day you get the cheaper fares that he's saying really it's a consumer that is missing out on the actually virgin would be offering very reasonable. indeed to say that the cost isn't enough reason for virgin to have lost out to easy jet. tickets available already if you purchase them while i went on the website today i did try my myself one and i could not available yet but we've had a few examples as to how much they're going to cost we did here just over two hundred dollars for a return which i think will go along with me to be cheaper be reasonable is that it is pretty reasonable but i mean. seems like the decision has already been made it's easy jet it's not version is trying to over for overturned that's i mean why does
2:35 pm
he want it so badly and he even talk about legal action against actually he does want it simply because he wants to make a lot of money with tickets of course but there's another way that he wants to tap into the cargo industry which is very lucrative between london and moscow and actually be a british airways they own forty percent of that market and he said when easyjet won the ten day he said i would have been smiling very profoundly that decision because i don't have the competition from virgin because virgin have the big life but it seems for now is just to be easy jet but there's also there's also good news for one hundred million dollars on the table right yeah there is and this is exciting something the russian government a ferry passionate about the future of energy and as you say are millions of dollars already invested into another company russia another company russ knocke i says listen again to hear about the. russia's had only source of oil and therefore they'd have a ready try to preserve energy and if you can preserve energy. then you can export
2:36 pm
more oil so it would put into a three hundred million dollars into russia or into trying to invest in companies that could come up with good ways of saving energy. i think you know to me you're going to keep it's happened all the details on gathering out while he's having so that he can say all right that's a very interesting story someone who thank you very much. right we've got time to take a look at the markets right now economic data has been supporting stocks consumer confidence in the united states is at the highest level apparently since two thousand and eight conference board said it's index increased to seventy two point two in october that's when the down revised sixty eight point four it's a very good news basically for investors in the united states and european markets followed new york after its opening with pretty strong gains to banks we're adding actually a lot lloyds up eight percent that's after its third quarter net loss came in
2:37 pm
better than expected now on the currency markets the euro is losing value to the dollar today but i have to say not much of a fluctuation of much of volumes going on there same thing with the russian ruble it's strengthened a bit to the basket of currencies are based on the higher oil which is as you know very much linked to the russian currency and the russian markets also managed to end first day session with the modest gains a second session in a row now among interesting stocks independent gas producer nover tech it lost over seventy percent as a company lost one of its main consumers know well majors ross now into rao these are two big gainers today as you can see there well rosneft for one reason was up on higher oil but also these two companies have signed a deal let's take a look at that in more detail. all right starting from two thousand and sixteen the energy holding will buy most of its gas from instead of nova tag the companies have
2:38 pm
agreed on a twenty five year contract which and this estimate is worth up to one hundred thirty billion dollars the gas will come from fields and will help the company improve the usage of will dissolve gas which usually gets burned down. and moscow's skyline is now again officially the tallest in europe despite the global downturn roofs have been rising as nick pool reports the new standard is being set boy golden white tower in the heart of the capital's financial district. all hail europe's new tallest building moscow's mercury city has reached its full height of three hundred thirty nine meters twenty nine meters higher than the previous record holder the shard in london due to be finished in the spring of next year it will often mixed real estate for apartments retail space and offices it's taken six years to build the cost of more than a billion dollars it will be the crown jewel in the empire russian retail tycoon
2:39 pm
you go to say if ninety one in new york i had that dream to build a skyscraper so now this dream has been realized where they were going to build another one we'll see but one thing i can tell you for sure i do not regret any single day of it because we really enjoyed the whole process tool maybe better when it comes to skyscrapers but it's not necessarily more expensive compared to the shard for instance a nice apartment here would cost a relatively modest three million dollars compared to the thirty million that charging for a pad next to the thames there's no shortage of harai space in moscow is the skyscraper capital of europe with four of the five tallest buildings but that's probably going to be its real forty's have stopped time to go licenses ensuring this gold watch tower will not be lost in the crowd. and finally there's a new banking service that could allow you to pay with your card even if you can't
2:40 pm
withdraw any money i'm talking about a new pristine card from his burbank which is made of pure gold with twenty six diamonds and this card can perform all of the operations of the regular one but if the owner is out of money he could pay with the card itself however owning such a thing will be costly the bank will charge around sixty four thousand dollars just to issue this card and then they will want another two thousand dollars a year of service fees the money isn't the problem then this might be at the moment it's only available in cassocks stop. i wonder what happens if you enter the pin wrong. computer says no it's kept it that the great wouldn't if it wasn't a verb or the first it was the first thank you to me three. all right we've got more business here of course later this is what else is ahead for you as well this hour how covering up to get locked up we take a look at why the government in canada is slapping a potential ten year jail term on people who hide their face here in large large scale rallies the details on that also the russian government shut down websites
2:41 pm
that pose possible harm to children but some claim it's the first step to online censorship again that's coming your way to very shortly. if you're passing through russia's to be a region you really can walk on the wild side thousands of kilometers of unspoilt countryside make up an area where it's still possible to live off the land such spectacular scenery makes it a paradise for fisherman and provides a business opportunity for hunters there are defined hunting seasons in russia but lax enforcement means many animals are killed out of the a lot of times which can leave young animals orphaned and unable to survive the heart of just a u.s. forest provides a sanctuary for the most famous beast in russia it's home to a group who rescue often bear cubs and raise them when they're old enough to fend for themselves the cubs are target taken to a remote location and released back into the wild but it's not just bears who find
2:42 pm
a haven here this is wolf island here wolf pups have been captured by hunters or bought from zoos have a second chance at life and conservationists have a unique opportunity to observe them. these walls are all around four months old and they'll stay in this area for up to three years then most will go back to the wild for good just viewing them from the car was an experience in itself but then after a bit of a bumpy ride came an opportunity i just couldn't pass up this is what i was hoping for when i heard i was coming to a place called wolf island a chance to get close and personal with the locals and it's these guys are going to act as pasta parents for the next generation will come here using the older walls as surrogate parents has already proved a successful technique. every year i place infant wolves with one year old wolf cubs whose parental instinct is totally shaped and they take them as their own cubs
2:43 pm
it's going to continue to take time and money to rehabilitate the wolf's reputation in russia. but the keepers here hope their research and dedication will mean that wolf island remains a place where visitors can truly understand the cool of the wild. wealthy british science. market. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike's concert for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines kaiser report.

2:45 pm
know we have understand here it's the conservative government that is implementing this they have a majority in the house of commons at the moment they also have a majority in the senate are upper house there so i mean this law is going to pass there's nothing stopping it now but i think what it comes down to is that people are looking at this in a response of not only the stanley cup hockey match that happened about a year or a year and a half ago two years ago where a banker ended up losing and fans are going outside rioting on the streets may cost millions and millions of dollars of damage in the streets of downtown vancouver and i mean that besides that i think also what it comes down to is that there's been more pressure pressure for this bill to go forward because of the student protests that have been happening in montreal and across can back up during the anti tuition hike movement that happened within the last few months so i mean that's really the sort of sentiment here is that this bill was needed in a sense and there are a lot of people who oppose it especially members and members of parliament who are
2:46 pm
members of the opposition but i mean there has been much outcry in terms of people being against this bill because of what you've seen in terms of the student protests the last few months i guess i mean the practical side the people are for and saying well can you arrest someone if you can identify them with their faces covered up is it going to make the streets any safer though not necessarily because i mean what we already have in terms of what minutes apologies with the major cities in canada do currently they have their own bylaws that are in place that are able to prevent. people from you know during major riots or major acts of violence from unlawful someways rather from from wearing masks in the first place if someone is actually out there on the streets you know bashing some piece car window or smashing a storefront there are laws that allow the police to obviously go in there and intervene and stop a criminal from doing something like that this law basically what it does is that it will criminalize people who are in protests if the police of that city deem the protest to be an unlawful assembly now of course that varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction terms of how easy it is for the police force to say this is an
2:47 pm
unlawful assembly or it is a lawful. assembly but let's look at montreal for example and across get back in any major city back where if you were fifty people or more in a in a peaceful protest a nonviolent protest that could be depended on unlawful assembly if you have not presented your itinerary and the directions of according to your protest routes to the police force of the municipality and come back before the protests started and that's what's causing a lot of controversy because people are saying you know it's my inherent right to go out and express our opinions and be able to go to the streets and take to the streets in a peaceful manner and this will be criminalizing even peaceful protests so that's what it's here but when peaceful protests go bad that's a question how do you deal with it now i know you have experience of protests yourself you have a great present give us some insight you covered those student protests in canada that made all of the global headlines what makes a peaceful demonstration turn violent ways the blame lies and. you know i think there's two major and that's
2:48 pm
a great question there's two major people i guess groups you can blame here i mean of course you have the people who are initiating the acts of violence here it's usually a small group of black bloc and our kids who i mean there are the really thoughts in the sense who grow up and they start smashing windows of banks and of of major retailers in the downtown area they're the ones who really start the problem here but then again you could say well it's the police force who really initiate this violence because they might be not going after these people in the first place they will be attacking peaceful protesters in the streets will be going after them when i was recovered when i was covering as a reporter the major i guess you protests that were happening in downtown one show because of the student protests that were happening there basically what i saw from my perspective is that i was even attacked for basically just filming police for doing my job for being able to report on a story and i mean i didn't understand it at the time why that was happening and i really it made me look up on the police our police force in downtown montreal and
2:49 pm
say to them you know what i work with you on a daily basis i do press conferences with you. i i mean able to interact with the people on your force but then when it comes to a protest situation you guys attack me and you guys attack my colleagues as well what's happening here and i mean some extent people say it's me well you know you have understand they're only doing their job on certain extent i could leave it there i'm afraid but thanks ever so much better insight there from you michael farr a reporter for c.j.d. radio montreal thank you. russian businessman platon lebedev who was jailed for involved in russia's infamous you call scandal said his prison for corruption reduced by three years big story today set to walk free next july the sean thomas has got the details. his sentence was reduced from thirteen years to ten years by a local court in our hand girls let me take you a little bit back through it to get to where we were today in two thousand and five both men were convicted of tax evasion and then they were retried in two thousand and ten and then convicted of stealing oil from their company now last year dimitri
2:50 pm
medvedev who was then president introduced legislation to soften up white collar crimes specifically favoring financial penalties as opposed to criminal sentences that therefore decriminalizing the more white collar crimes basically saying that these were not violent offenders and they shouldn't be treated as such so they would be financially punished instead now this set the course if you will for the decision of this lessening of this sentence the lawyers have said that this is the closest thing that they can get to a humane sentence and they do not plan to appeal this decision and just putting it into perspective has actually been in custody for ten years now he's serving his ten year which means that he will be eligible for release in july two thousand and thirteen so this coming summer it's possible there. will be free. the scandal over tsunami relief funds siphoned off elsewhere shocking the fund after

revelations of billions of victims reconstruction has gone to everything from helping whales to business is nowhere near the disaster a full day is about online tonight. also we're talking about this one too on earth as it is in space the curiosity rover is now detected with dust on mars contains minerals similar to saying. in a wife a great story it's on our website. a new internet laws come into effect in russia or learn the government to shut down websites potentially harmful to children earlier this year a number of the country's most popular websites spoke out against the plan claimed it could pave the way for online censorship. the details. well an online registry which is going to contain the list of banned websites is already operating the purpose of this law is to protect children from potentially harmful information on the internet and the way it works is that after all these monitor the web and find things like instructions how to consume drugs or mique weapons or propaganda of
2:52 pm
suicides or of course pornography then this website is recommended to take this information down if it doesn't then its host is recommended to do the same and if the in force still stays online then the website is put on this list in this registry is blocked and remains blocked until the information is taken down the reaction on this law has been mixed while there are those who believe that it could actually help protect children or all that also those who believe that it could be used to censor the internet but needless to say similar child protection laws are not something which was created here in russia it's a widespread practice all over the wall different look at europe then there is some very tough legislation especially in some scandinavian countries with punishments going all the way up to jail sentences if you look at the united states then there is the controversial law which prohibits children under thirteen from using search engines like google and g. mail but this has been causing quite
2:53 pm
a lot of criticism as well here in russia we're talking about temporary measures because like i said these blocked websites could be unblocked if the information is taken down there's also always the possibility of taking these cases to court which could also worth the band set by the authorities some big news stories in brief tonight few a fuel tanker explosion in the saudi capital riyadh has killed at least twenty two and injured more than one hundred thirty people near a local military building that lori blew up after it crashed into a concrete highway flyover goal three cars and houses in flames multi-story building in a nearby dust of the state was completely destroyed by the massive blast awful scene. she waited for a teaser void of harsher than. in the crackdown on demonstrators now defying a ban on public gatherings it follows a night of severe clashes between police and protesters who marched in support of a jailed opposition activist the violence initially erupted over changes to kuwait select opposition groups say the legislation favors pro racing candidates in next
